2017 Microscope Study Group

The Bucks County BKA Microscopy Group meet monthly from February through September. The sessions cover all the aspects of the BBKA Microscopy Assessment Syllabus plus a lot more. In 2017 we will be looking further into the anatomy of the Honeybee as well as investigating other insects such as Bumblebees, Moths and Butterflies. We will also be matching pollens to wild flowers and discovering the flowers upon which our bees are foraging.

The Study Group is open to all members of Bucks County BKA and no previous experience in Microscopy is required.

There will be an free introductory session on Saturday 21st January for those who would like to find out more about the topic and the activities of the group. There is an annual fee to cover the cost of materials provided and hire of the hall for the meetings of £30 for Bucks members and £60 for non-county members. Attendees do not have to purchase their own equipment as our branch Associations generously provide some microscopes and tools. We meet once a month in the Wendover area on a Saturday morning, additionally there are practice sessions on a Monday evening.

For those planning on taking the BBKA Assessment there are extra study sessions.
